Hi everyone
I have recently installed Apache2 with apt-get (sudo apt-get install apache2)

The site http://127.0.0.1 works. (It works!)

I am currently reading a book which teaches me how to use apache but I can't seem to find the htdocs folder which is needed for the index.

Where does ubuntu install apache2 under?

this would give you a good indication of what type of files are found in certain directories. doing: locate apache will probably give you a good idea of where that file is. this is a good way to learn what goes where.

Thx guys.

But I am just curios as to where Ubuntu (and linux) generally saves applications. Under windows, we have a central location (program files) but then there is a bin and then an sbin. There's a bin under / but also under /share. Why are there so many different bins directory and sbins directory?

Thanks - I was wondering exactly the same as I liked to reskin some apps in windows....

I can't say I immediately grasp the structure on first glance....

Is it dangerous to attempt to alter some files/png's etc when found ?

i'd say its fine as long as you back the originals up.

for example, if i do
locate vlc Very inefficient!

Why not simply ask the package where it installed itself???
dpkg -L NameOfPackage I don't have Apache here, but let's do this with e.g. Firefox 3:

dpkg -L firefox-3.0

If you're not sure about a package name you can use 'dpkg -l' to list all packages that have a similar name. Example again with Firefox - I want to see a list of all packages that have "fox" in their name:
dpkg -l '*fox*'

So with "dpkg -l" and "dpkg -L" you should instantly get all the info you need and don't have to waste time with needless file searches that might not even produce the result you want. :D
